He would've been a disaster here, but I find no sympathy for Oakland. They knew who he was and he finally was at a good enough place to play games and they fine him over skipping a practice. You have to know better.
Guys like Gruden are the real cancer. Falling all over themselves to apologize and make excuses when their players go off the deep end. It's why Steubenville happened. It's why Aaron Hernandez happened.
Finally someone saying the thing I've been saying the whole time. Contract do NOT get negotiated that quickly. They take days or even weeks. Add in the fact that Drew Rosenhaus is a fucking snake and you have a very illegal poaching claim against the cheaters. AB should be suspended and the Patriots should be fined and lose draft picks.
Some of the details on this one show such complete and utter disconnect between what I would consider "normal" or "decent" behavior that even after all of these years, after everything that's happened to me and everything I've seen happen to others, AB's alleged bragging still shocks me.
